The other buckling with the grey ears, nose and in his tail. JEL Big Country son out of a Trump daughter.
I registered a handful of Trump sons in his 10 years here, I did not think I had any left. When we went to see who the 2 bucklings left after culling (out of 34) were. I found this guy was indeed a Trump son, His dam is Tidbit ( EHL Potts over KMG Leila). Vanilla is two and a big doe - this fall will be his test breed.
I have woefully neglected this page! I went on to our website the other night to work on it and apparently I'm going to have to get another page to put past Herd sires on, because I simply can't take Trump down. He was an awesome buck! The best doe maker we've ever owned, and I miss him terribly still.
I am going totry to take some pictures this week.
The girls at Albany - just picking
Tatiana getting ready for the snow!
We lost Trump today. He wasnt sick, he would have been 11 in march

There will be a slight delay in the pictures - we are back to pulling them out of the mud
Okay, so we spent the weekend trying to dig goats out of the mud. Now we have the goats out of the mud and everybody is vaccinated. We're all okay (goats and Steve and I)hopefully I'll get pictures up next week & hopefully it won't rain anymore!
First time Baby X BooBoo daughter bred to Red. Doeling 75%

First doe of the season. NNT29 XTrump doe bred to Red
First doeling of the year yesterday evening, first twins last night about 11:30pm. All are now dry, vaccinated and weighed. I am now dry also, Steve is still working on the barn. Will get pictures up later right now I am going to bask in being warm, dry and tired.
Kidding season officially begins on Valentine's day! Just worked out that way. We need a lot of our NZ does to Trump this year. Hope for a buck out of that group!
SDM Crazy Horse looks like Country Boy (his grandsire) but he's a Trump son.
Doe Code of Honor
The doe's secret code of honor is as old as goats themselves and is the species best kept secret. No doe shall ever kid before its time. (Its time being determined by the following factors):
1- No kid shall be born until total chaos has been reached by all involved. Your owner's house must be a wreck, their family hungry and desperate for clean clothes, and their social life nonexistent.
2- "Midwives" must reach the babbling fool status before you kid out. Bloodshot eyes, tangled hair and the inability to form a sentence mean the time is getting close.
3- For every bell, beeper, camera or whistle they attach to you, kidding must be delayed by at least one day for each item. If they use an audio monitor, one good yell per hour will keep things interesting.
4- If you hear the words, "She's nowhere near ready. She'll be fine while we're away for the weekend," Wait until they load the car, then begin pushing!
5- Owner stress must be at an all time high! If you are in the care of someone else, ten to fifteen phone calls a day is a sign you're getting close.
6- When you hear the words "I can't take it anymore!" wait at least three more days.
7 -You must keep this waiting game interesting. False alarms are mandatory! Little teasers such as looking at your stomach, pushing your food around in the bucket and then walking away from it, and nesting, are always good for a rise. Be creative and find new things to do to keep the adrenaline pumping in those who wait.
8- The honor of all goats is now in your hands. Use this time to avenge all of your barn mates. Think about your friend who had to wear that silly costume in front of those people. Hang onto that baby for another day. OH, they made him do tricks too! Three more days seems fair. Late feedings, the dreaded diet, bad haircuts, those awful wormings can also be avenged at this time.
9- If you have fulfilled all of the above and are still not sure when to have the kids, listen to the weather forecast on the radio that has been so generously provided by those who wait. Severe storm warning is what you're waiting for. In the heart of the storm jump into action! The power could go out and you could have the last laugh. You have a good chance of those who wait missing the whole thing while searching for a flashlight that works!
10- Make the most of your interrupted nights. Beg for food each time someone comes into the barn to check you. Your barn mates will love you as the extra goodies fall their way too.
Remember, this code of honor was designed to remind man of how truly special goats are. Do your best to reward those who wait with a beautiful doeling to carry on the Doe Code of Honor for the next generation of those who wait.
CJ spent the nice day working on his fence.
Red enjoying the weather
Garfield will be 2 this February- I was wrong about his age. His littermate was one of the 43 goats that were not wormed during the 2016 MD buck test.
Garfield is a Booboo son. Age 2 in Feb 17
We lost Sadie Monday night. She was sleeping peacefully in her stall, we buried her on the hill with Midnight and Country Boy. She was our first registered doe. And she was an Awesome girl.
Will try to get this page updated we are still here. It has been a tough year!
Rachel Rae is a JEL Shellottes Trump daughter out of an exceptional doe - we don't get a lot of the black & white pattern from him. Tilly is a purebred daughter of MCR D11 Shellottes Red and SDM Milly a daughter of Big Boys Thunder. Both does will be at the Cumberland Meat Goat Conference in Cookville, TN at the Hyder Burks Pavillion May 20, 2017
Baby is getting old her babies came too early. Lost the brother and at 3 days this guy weighed 2 lb 12 oz. that he is alive is a testament to kiko mother-ability.
Thumper is 2 (2/10) he is the second purebred we have kept and this is his second year as a junior herdsire. We used him extensively this season over percentage does and are pleased with the results
Mandy had twin does about two this morning. Thumper babies. The games have begun!
Unwanted, egg eating, visitor to the chicken house.
SDM Survivor - "Vi" was
#544 in the 2015 Maryland buck test. He did not gain weight but came out with his last fecal count 925 and was not wormed during the test. He really does have that little white spot on his nose. He is a purebred.
SDM Toffee will be at Kikofest this fall.
